Barcelona target Matthijs de Ligt has expressed his admiration for the Catalans.
Matthijis De Ligt, 18, is reportedly Barca’s number one defensive target ahead of the January transfer window.
The Ajax centre back has admitted that he admires the La Liga leaders, but also insists he is happy at his current club.
He told Fox Sports: “My favourite team in Spain? [It’s] Barcelona because of the connection they have with Ajax and the nice football.
“There are many things that have been written and, as I have not known anything, why would I have to be worried? Every player is affected when they are linked with big teams and I am no different, but I do not care too much. I still play at Ajax and am happy here.”
